I was looking for a certified arborist in Austin and saw Neal Howerton listed on the Natural Gardener website. He came out to our home in Lost Creek and spent time looking at our trees and making suggestions about how to best prune them. His bid was reasonable, and the work he and his crew did was excellent. I asked them to keep as much of each tree as possible, which they did, and they cleaned up beautifully. They also chipped and left behind some of the dead wood, which we'll use to create paths on our property. I will absolutely contact Neal the next time we need tree care.
I have been using Neal Howerton for my arborist for 20 some years now. I have a one-acre wooded lot, and he comes each year to trim trees and make sure all trees share the canopy.
I have a wide variety of trees and all have space under the sun. The mere fact of rehiring him year after year should say it all. He is skilled, timely, and listens to the client.
On his advice, we are more prone to keep trees rather than cut them down or butcher them. I highly recommend Neal.
My wife and I own property in Lakeway, Texas that contains more than 15 large trees and native shrubs (mostly native and planted oaks of various varieties, cedar elm, walnut, and Ashe juniper). For the last 10 years we have utilized Neal Howerton for all our tree care needs and have never been disappointed in the consultation and work he has done.
Being a certified arborist, he understands both the science and the aesthetics of tree and shrub care. We have found his knowledge and advice invaluable in making decisions regarding the maintenance of our trees and shrubs and answering our questions. It's a pleasure to work and talk with him.
Neal has always been on time and finished the work efficiently and at or below the original cost estimate. He is as meticulous with the cleanup and mulching as he is with the actual trimming and cutting.
We have had Neal Howerton attending to our trees for several years (our property totals eight acres).
We have been pleased with the service; he is knowledgeable, dependable and reasonable. We have recommended him to friends and would not hesitate to do so in the future.
